Sarkozy says ordered French fuel depots unblocked

PARIS (BestGrowthStock) – President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Wednesday he had given the order for police to clear all remaining blockades at French fuel depots, as protest action hit supply at around a third of the country’s petrol pumps.

Police moved in overnight to clear blockades, mounted in protest at a planned pension reform, at three fuel depots after the government said on Tuesday it aimed to restore normal fuel supply within four to five days.
